Alstom T&D India was recently awarded a contract worth INR 1060 million (€13 million) by Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) to provide power transformer packages for the expansion of Jamnagar refinery, the world’s largest single location refinery complex located in Gujarat, India.

The contract is part of an ongoing expansion known as J3, which denotes phase three expansion of the Jamnagar complex. Alstom T&D India had earlier teamed up with RIL for phase two expansion to supply generator transformers of 220 kV. In the third phase, Alstom will provide transformers to receive power at high voltages, and lower them to acceptable levels for distribution to newly expanded complexes; this includes Gasification plants, the Ethylene Cracker complex, and the Paraxylene plant.

The scope of the new contract includes designing, engineering, manufacturing, supply, supervision of erection, and commissioning of 14 gasification service transformers (174 MVA, 220/34.5 kV) and 3 generator step-up transformer packages (160 MVA, 14.5/231 kV). These transformers are integral components, essential for safe and efficient transmission of power on the electric grid. All transformers will be manufactured from Alstom T&D India’s manufacturing facility in India.

Mr. Rathin Basu, Managing Director of Alstom T&D India, said, “We are pleased to partner with RIL once again, a testimony of their trust in our products and technological capabilities. We remain committed to delivering high quality, cost effective products and services, which will enhance the capacity of the Jamnagar refinery and help fuel the economic growth of the country.”

As a pioneer, Alstom’s expertise in electrical power transformers extends from generation to HVDC systems, and to all kinds of special industrial applications. With strong references of up to 800 kV and 2750 MVA in major power networks worldwide, Alstom Grid is one of the world leaders in electrical power transformers and reactors.
